Exclamation Atlas Leaking

My Atlas II seems to be leaking and I'm having issues tring to track it down. I, took some picks of the Atlas right after driving it last night. It doesn't seem to be the breather, but it did have oil all down the front of it, In the first image, there was a drop of oil near the arrow and this hole at the top. I'm not axactly sure what the hole is or if anythign should be in it. The second image is where it was wet from oil. Ideas?

degrease the entire thing then add some tracer dye to it. You will need a blacklight or florescent light, whatever the dye glows under

no idea, but it looks like the oil is coming from the front output bearing plate, the one with the 4 bolts holding it in. Can't be too hard to change, just a little RTV. It also looks like the entire sight tube is filled with oil. Isn't that a little high?

Actually, the tube is empty. Talked to AA this afternoon. They said that hole is there for other types of vechicles that have a vaccum hose and that is should be sealed for Jeeps. It's actually threaded so I put a bolt in there after work, haven't had a chance to drive it since then so I'll see if it helps.

They also suggested cleaning it with oil remover, driving it for a few miles and then checking to see where oil is coming out.
